Goodbye Fred Phelps

Someone sent me a link to a story on the death of Fred Phelps, the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church whose claim to fame is picketing funerals of American armed service members with banners reading “God Hates Fags”. I always wondered what I would think and how I would react when someone I didn’t like and who had caused so much heartache and pain to people died. I must say, I’m feeling very indifferent. I know there are people who loved and cared for the man and their loss and grief must be acknowledged. But that’s all I can give. And that’s all the ink I’ll give to him. Now hopefully the world can move past his brand of hate.
